4 Best Ways to Increase Traffic to Your Blog

4 Best Ways to Increase Traffic to Your Blog
There is never a better way for people to share their thoughts and opinion to the world than blogging. Blogging essentially means keeping an online journal or a diary and maintain it on a daily basis.
Not only individuals but businesses also maintain their blog to help increase the amount of sales on their web sites. To achieve increased sales, bloggers must first try to increase traffic to their blogs. It is the prime goal. Every blogger without exception wants to keep his visitors coming back for more. There are four salient methods to enhance blog traffic.
Before explaining about the four ways, I want you to know that blogging is no more a hobby but a real business and if treated as such, the goal of starting and maintaining a blog will be met.
Not only companies but individuals have also started selling goods and services through their blogs. Businesses choose blogging because it is as an inexpensive way to advertise their products or services.
1. Regular content update: The first discipline for bloggers to increase visitors to their blogs is to post content on their blogs as frequently as possible. I would say, at least 3 posts per week is a must. Visitors will stay loyal to blogs that are updated daily. Nowadays bloggers update their blogs daily if not several times a day. Readers are likely to lose interest in your blog if they have to wait several days for new content. In fact search engines too expect a blog to be updated with fresh content frequently. Be aware that there are literally thousands of blogs available on the Internet. If your blog is not updated on a regular basis, you will lose your readers to another blog.
2. Participate in web communities: There are number of discussion forums also known as web communities in the internet. Participating in such discussion forums is a definite way to get new visitors to your blog there by raising the blog traffic. Interacting with the members of forums by way of asking questions and answering others’ queries will slowly expose your knowledge in the topics and you will be considered as an authority in your niche. You can also show genuine interest in others’ blogs and ask them to visit your blog. When you visit others’ blogs, it is advisable to leave meaningful comments on their blog post. This act of yours will be definitely reciprocated by other members of the forum.
3. Tracking the blog traffic: Any website (blog is also a website that can be maintained by anyone without any web development knowledge) will soon die if the webmaster (blogger) doesn’t employ any tracking methods to know:
* The nature of visitors,
*from where they came from,
*for how long each visitor stayed on the site,
*what they clicked
And so on.
The best tracking tool is provided by Google free of cost to every blogger and webmaster. It is called Google Analytics.
4. Include keywords: You blog can gain readership if you methodically input proper keywords that are related to your blog’s topic in your content title and the body. If you are lazy to do this, your blog will not grow at all. Keyword analysis is a laborious task and every blogger cannot afford to evade it.
As mentioned earlier, blogging is a serious business and unless a blogger understands and employs these four ways, he will abandon his blog soon.

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi Twit IQ Review: Worthwhile Wireless Headphones With a Few Quirks

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi  Twit IQ Review: Worthwhile Wireless Headphones With a Few Quirks

The microphone specialist Blue Microphones is entering the market of hi-fi headphones. The over-ear headphone has an integrated amplifier, which should raise the sound of the gadget to new heights no matter which device serves as a source for the audio material. Blue was kind enough to provide with great excellence so that it initiated me to present you the Gadget review of this wonderful Blue Microphone Mo-fi.

Blue Microphone Mo-fi Massive, Robust and Heavy

When the delivery man gave me the package with the Mo-Fi, I was surprised by the size of the carton. Inside is not only the comfortably stowed Mo-Fi, but also packed with numerous accessories, which quickly prove to be very useful. In addition to a 1.2-meter long 3.5mm MFI cable with remote control, a regular 3.5mm cable is also found in the box, which measures 3 meters in length. As already mentioned, the integrated amplifier is one of the highlights, which is powered by a 1020 mAh battery with juice. The battery is charged via a micro USB cable, which is also included with a USB power plug. Also an adapter from 3.5mm to 6.3mm, as well as a very useful aircraft adapter can be found in the carton. There is a matching bag for the transport of the Mo-Fi.

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi _3

Taking the Mo-Fi and the accessories into your hand, it becomes clear that Blue Microphone places great emphasis on the processing of the product. Especially the headphone with its 466 grams makes a robust impression immediately and shows no trace of inadequate work in the production. Very beautiful indeed!

The Mo-Fi can be put into operation together with the amplifier, the Blue Microphone headphones must be charged once. After approximately three to four hours, the built-in battery is fully charged and you can use the headphones with active amplifiers up to 12 hours. But before you start, make sure the Mo-Fi is sitting comfortably on your head. To ensure this, Blue has developed a number of design features and you can know everything about it through this Gadget review. This will not only change the distance between the auricles and the temple, but also the pressure that the auricles will have on your head. For this purpose, a wheel is arranged in the center of the bracket which regulates said pressure by way of a spring construction inside the bracket. You have the choice between a rather loose seat and maximum sound insulation.

Also the cushions at the temple and the auricles are at first very comfortable. Unfortunately, the Blue Microphone Mo-fi is only really comfortable for sessions of a maximum of one hour, because at the beginning you get an unpleasant feeling of pressure on your head. This is probably due to the extremely high weight of the headphone and its massive design, which is not easy to carry compared to other models. Even with the easiest pressure setting for the auricles it became uncomfortable for me in the long run.

Another problem with the Blue Microphone Mo-Fi occurs during transportation. The headphone is definitely intended for the home use and accordingly you cannot fold. So you need a big bag to transport the headphones and should not disturb you with eye-catching glances that you will undoubtedly draw to you in the train and bus with these voluminous listeners.

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi _2

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi, A real sturdy Breed

The Blue Microphone Mo-Fi is particularly bright thanks to its first-class sound with activated amplifier. This is connected via a small switch to the plug socket and amplifies the input signal, without producing conspicuous noise. With an active amp on “On”, the Blue Microphone Mo-Fi has a very large stage and a natural, almost analytical sound. Especially with quiescent pieces the instrument is very good and abstracted. The amp provides an increased dynamic range and a significantly increased volume level, so that you can listen correctly, rightly, loudly. Due to the good sound insulation of the leather upholstery, however, a low volume with activated amp is usually sufficient for a great musical enjoyment. If you turn the amplifier on “On +”, you get a proper boost of the depth, which may be desired depending on the musical itinerary, but somewhat the natural sound image is wasted.

An advantage of the Blue Microphone Mo-Fi headphone: If the battery is once empty, the Blue Microphone Mo-Fi can still play music – like a normal headphone. The “Off” mode is especially recommended for users of external amplifier solutions. Suddenly, the included MFI cable is very susceptible to touch and creates annoying noise – sometimes the sound on one ear is even completely out! I tested the whole thing on my MacBook Pro, that worked without problems with the Mo-Fi (with active amplifier) and my beloved B & W P5. Also otherwise, the sound without Amp compared to my P5 rather dull and shows only few details. You should always pay attention to the status LED of the headphone or use an external amplifier. This helps the amplifier switch off automatically when the headphone is not in use or is sitting on a head. The status LED on the left auricle is then off.

Blue Microphone Mo-Fi _4

CONCLUSION

Technically, the Blue Microphone Mo-Fi of course is bit more powerful, however, blasts every frame of portable headphones. This first impression is relatively fortunate when you try it on for the first time. Blue is the headphones with all sorts of amenities. Both ear cushions are extremely softly padded. The same is true for the stirrup which rests comfortably on the head. In addition, the width can be adjusted via a wheel, whereby the headphones can be adapted to virtually for everyone.

The Blue Microphone Mo-Fi is more than neat for a debut headphone in the hi-fi class and convinces with a precise, natural sound with an active amplifier. Even as a layman and without an external amplifier can be from the Mo-Fi so small sound wonder. Less convenient is the wearing comfort and the transportability. The Blue Microphone Mo-Fi is simply too heavy and massive. Since the very good workmanship and the robust design consoles even over conditionally over it. I hope this Blue Microphone Mo-Fi Gadget review will provide with the valuable information about this Mo-fi and I hope most of you are thinking about buying a Blue Microphone Mo-Fi, or you should try to listen to it for a few hours with an active amplifier in order to get a clear picture.

12 Creative Ways to Use Your Old Mobile Phone

12 Creative Ways to Use Your Old Mobile Phone

Old Mobile Phone: 12 Other Uses Instead of Recycling or Binning Them

Great things you can do with an old Android Mobile Phone

Often good films have a second part. Why not gadgets, which are especially around the popular Android operating system? Just Android is predestined for things that caters all our necessities that’s in the form as a phone lies in the pants pockets. Most of us would like to change our phones couple of times in an year, and eventually they give their phones to others or donate or recycle. And before we throw the Mobile Phone away, which perhaps replace with a newer device – we should possibly find other fields of application to use your Mobile Phone in an alternate way – the 2nd part of the movie.Even if the device is simply old, display is scratched or broken – or the battery cover is missing: Android Mobile Phones can still be used for many, many things – this is the fantastic thing on the Android platform. Server For Many Things If you are technically interested and have certainly been playing a lot of server services you can set up the most efficient server. The bad thing: in the 90s I had my own crate running day and night at home, which swallowed lots of electricity. Today, there are Android tools such as Server Ultimate, which may take the learning effect, but can do various server services power-saving. Supports Remote Control and over 40 protocols, such as CVS, DHCP, DLNA, DNS, Dynamic DNS, or Email. It is the 14-day trial, the Pro version is currently at 6.99 euros.

Low-Cost Alarm System

Of course, an Android Mobile Phone does not replace a professional alarm system, but you can still use it as a motion detector including alarm. Mobile Alarm System is one of the tools that also takes a picture and informs you by SMS or e-mail. The app is at 99 cents.. The alarm can be triggered when someone is moving near you and detect many activities and inform the owner about the changes occurred.

Evidence During Driving

Bogged motorists, cyclists and pedestrians… For this purpose, a large number of drivers have installed a special camera (Dashcam) in the car with which they can take traffic, so that they can have evidence in an emergency. DailyRoads Voyager not only records video, but also displays your speed based on GPS.

Multimedia Screen

BubbleUPnP is a software that can certainly be sorted in the category. The 3.9 euro costs Pro version makes the Mobile Phone to UPnP servers / receivers displaying almost all data formats. Movies, music, pictures that are not only received but can also be streamed to other devices such as the PlayStation 3.

GPS Anti-Theft System For The Car

Admittedly, this solution may remind James Bond , but it is possible to permanently locate the car. For this purpose you can connect the Mobile Phone somewhere hidden in the car permanently to the power supply and with software such as Cerberus. Actually, Cerberus is a software to protect or localize the Mobile Phone – so it becomes a lowcost tracker for your car.

Use As a Surveillance Camera

Definitely a great software is the IP Webcam. Software, a few quality settings and the monitor is ready, which you can access via the web browser or the VLC Media Player. Maybe interesting for house, yard and garden. If you also set up your router for port forwarding, the camera can query from anywhere in the world.

 

Mobile Phone As a Receiver Or Mobile Sound System

Quite honestly, who needs a tuner today? Mobile Phone and half-way reasonable boxes. Already with some radio software – such as TuneIn – you have a world receiver that conjures up the sounds from all parts of the world in the ear.

Mobile Phone As Picture Frame

Most of us are really not great photographers and also in our environment hardly anyone uses a photo-picture frame. If you want to put something like this on your desktop, you will find a lot of picture apps or widgets in the Play Store of Google, which will show you the pictures in different versions on the display.

Mobile Phone As a Baby Monitor

Anyone looking around the Play Store will find dozens of tools to turn the old Mobile Phone into a baby monitor. The Android Mobile Phone is suitable both in terms of sound, as well as in terms of video to the baby phone, whereby fair stress must be emphasized that most Mobile Phones rather have a cam, which is unsuitable at night. Nevertheless: many parents monitor the sleep of the little ones with a Baby phone, which only plays back sound.

AirPlay Sound Receiver For Wireless Music

You have an iPhone, iPad or maybe you manage your music with iTunes? You do not necessarily have to buy an expensive AirPlay system for nearly 80 euros! An old Mobile Phone with Android, an amplifier with boxes and a cable is enough.

Hotspot for WLAN Devices

Your laptop, iPad or tablet has only WLAN and you do not want to buy an expensive, mobile hotspot? No problem! Just use your old Mobile Phone as a hotspot by activating tethering on your device.

Recipient for Google Music

Fan of Google Music? Convert the Mobile Phone to the Google Music server! Connect to the system with a jack-to-RCA cable, you can use the old Android Mobile Phone as a receiver for Google Music. Just take Music Remote on the receiver and the Android Mobile Phone / tablet, which takes over the control. You can run the server on the old Mobile Phone and on the remote control you can tell which Google Music Playlist is to be played. Advantage: Streaming, which is of course great with small memory of the old device.

Download Torrent Files

With BitTorrent or uTorrent, you can easily use the old Android Mobile Phone as a suction station for your torrents. UTorrent and Co support the automatic download via feeds, alternatively you can access via VNC from the computer to the Mobile Phone to enter the downloads there.

All You Need to Know Before Creating a Blog

All You Need to Know Before Creating a Blog
As a veteran blogger, I would like to share my 12 years of blogging in this with prospective bloggers. Blogs capture the readers from all walks of life because they are interactive

Have you ever heard of ‘blog factor’?

So what’s this “blog factor“?  A unique concept planted in the cyber world several years ago has now evolved into such a proportion that no one expected.  About 7 years ago, the estimated number of blogs was approximately 9 million and added to that, about 50k blogs were launched every day.

What is a blog?

Simply put, blog is a digital diary stored in the cyber space by individuals and corporate bodies. Blog (short for Web log) is a place where you and I update latest information that interests us.

We can blog about:

  • Our current thoughts
  • Opinion after reading a news, watching a movie or after reading a book
  • What we saw on the road, who we met by chance
  • A product or a service that we recently bought

Do you know that some blogs are nothing more than a daily glimpse into someone’s life, while others contain sophisticated content?

Why a blog?

As previously said, They are your personal digital diary that anyone can read and also, who doesn’t like others attention to ones dreams and opinion. It is a surefire way to get all the attention you crave for.

Every search engine has a deep love affair with blogs because of fresh content that gets updated every second somewhere in the world.

When you have completed one year of blogging, you would have slowly evolved into a professional blogger which means you will start earning money through various avenues, the prime being the Google AdSense where the king Google will serve advertisements of its clients on yours and you are paid a certain sum of money for every valid click on the ads.

Every big corporate body, every famous brand including Coke and Colgate will have their blog alongside their website because through their blogs, they can propagate their products quickly and effectively in the Internet and that too by spending negligible amount.

What to blogging about?

Ah, there is no dearth of topics to blogging about. Just about anything we talk about to our family, friends, colleagues and strangers can be an interesting blogging topic. As they, you can write about anything under the sun without hurting another human being.

I once read about a novel author’s blog where every character of his fiction became blogging topic! What a creative idea! It was a sort of the novel’s character’s diary.

Blogging subjects are found in hundreds of categories and further divided into hundreds of sub-categories. The blogging ideas are just countless. All you require is a basic interest on the topic that you wish to blogging about.

So, how to launch a blog?

Creating a blog is very easy. All you have to do is register yours in http://www.blogger.com, and you are on your way. It can be completed in about 5 minutes provided you have decided on the name of your blog and a brief description of your blog.

To create yours in blogger.com that is owned by Google is totally free. Yes, you can start a blog free of cost and even you can make money out of it!

Wow! Wouldn’t you be interested?

Graphene – a Material with Promising Superconducting Properties

Graphene – a Material with Promising Superconducting Properties

Graphene, the new shooting star among the stable carbon forms

For a long time, physicists have been bothering about what should follow silicon when the microelectronics based on this material reaches its end. The latest hope carrier is made of carbon and is neither a metal nor a Super conducting material – the Graphene

The super conducting material Graphene is always good for surprises. When the well renowned science magazine ‘Science’ in 1991 declared the C60 fullerenes consisting of 60 carbon atoms as the molecule, Japanese researchers had already discovered another stable form of carbon: the nanotubes consisting of coiled graphite layers.

However, the nanotubes are in danger of being overshadowed by a further modification of the carbon. Two and a half years ago Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov of the University of Manchester succeeded in peeling off a graphite block from a layer of adhesive, until only a single atomic layer of graphite remained. This layer is one million times thinner than a sheet of paper. Thus, the researchers had achieved something which was previously considered impossible. For theoretical reasons it had been believed that two-dimensional crystals were not stable and would either clump or roll up. Graphene has excellent electrical conductivity as the group from Manchester continued to emerge. This prompted many researchers to look more closely at the material and its application potential in modern electronics.

If they are to be recorded with the usual terms, then it is neither a semiconductor nor a metal. The high conductivity of metals is due to the fact that there are always free electrons in them, which can be set in motion by an electric field. In a semiconductor, on the other hand, the electrons have to be lifted from the full valence band over an energy gap (the so-called band gap) into the conduction band so that they can flow as current. The peculiarity of the super conducting material Graphene consists in the fact that the two bands are not strictly separated from one another, but are touching at certain points.

This unusual band structure is due to the honeycomb like arrangement of the carbon atoms in the 2D crystal lattice. This results in a number of strange consequences. Thus the assert carriers in graphene show in some respects a behavior which is otherwise known only from particles which move approximately at the speed of light. This analogy is particularly fascinating for basic researchers.

Very recently MIT physicists discovered that a graphene flake, while brought in close propinquity among two superconducting materials, could acquire some of those materials superconducting attributes. As graphene being machinate between superconductors, its electronic state alters dramatically, even at its center. Visualized below is the brief data-based conception.

Their discovery, publicized few days ago in Nature Physics, are the prototypical research of Andreev affirms due to superconductivity’s “proximity effect” in a 2D material such as graphene.

In the near future, the researchers of graphene platform might be used to research exotic materials, such as Majorana fermions, that are greatly considered to spring up the important materials for building omnipotent, error proof quantum computers.
